Recipe found in my Quick Breads Swans Down Cook Book--These scones are light, tender and flaky- the add for these says: "these scones show what a difference Swans Down makes in quick breads too. A dainty touch for an afternoon tea or breakfast".

Recipe from my Swans Down Booklet- 1934.
Tweaked a tab by me.
